The restaurant was perfectly entitled to hold the policy and the hostess was entitled to ask. However, what the hostess claimed transpired and what actually transpired (based on the defendants lawyer) seems to not line up. The hostess initially let the women in to their seats but allegedly when conf...

Still feels kind of gross to reason about it because for sure it's wrong and she needs to face the consequences but at the same time there is probably more to the story than simply 'evil woman kills adult autistic child for no reason'. It could help save other autistic or disabled people in general...

In 1960 it would have been completely harmless if it was sung by Ben E King.

But when Jim Reeves (a white man) sang it in the 1960s it sounded racist as everyone knew he was referring to the one white girl living in Spanish Harlem.

He got away with money he stole from students in Trump University. He also pocketed $250 million claiming to fight false claims over voter fraud. The authorities found out he has been investing the money and pocketing the dividends. He's been asked to return the money. https://www.theguardian.com/us...

This must always be a consideration when people do absurdly stupid things.

He should be charged with a hate crime.


Wasn't he the victim of his own crime :lol:

He wasted police resources and for that he should face the music

Murder is never an answer. If the mother was that exhausted and stressed then she should have just hit her or something. Yes I know hitting is wrong and everything but it's still better than killing. I'm guessing the hitting must have already preceded the strangling. If the daughter was already bei...

One of my parent's favourite songs is a Jim Reeve's rendition of the song "Rose in Spanish Harlem". When I was older I felt the song was a bit racist on two levels. Firstly stipulating it was Spanish Harlem (not Harlem) so that the girl was identified as Spanish (not black). But secondly ...

Here in Australia you can't directly measure IQ for getting a job or a place in university. However, as Fnord mentioned, there are proxy measures that have good concurrent validity to IQ. e.g. problem solving tasks given as part of a job interview or scores on standardised tests in combination with ...

According to Hopkins "Some doctor told me" which comes across as a medical doctor's professional opinion rather than part of a comprehensive diagnostic assessment which he (Hopkins) consented to. A famous Australian classical pianist David Helfgott was also diagnosed with Aspergers and sch...

Yeah it's probably an individual decision. Older entertainers can't always replicate the gyrations and movement of old which explains why when James Brown, Tina Turner or even Josephine Baker did concerts in old age they would have skipped numbers they would have played in their prime. One of my par...

Technically in the TV series the organ harvesting is done by a group within the games who are acting outside of the game rules so even that bit doesn't reflect the actions of the CCP Even prior to rounding up dissident Uiyghurs the CCP were accused of harvesting organs from both political prisoners ...

Is there evidence that CNN's Don Lemon has actually covered up for Sanjay Gupta? Gupta's biggest mistake is making claims that he hasn't bothered to fact check. He also said that Rogan physically intimidated him on set. If individual journalistic integrity relating to one incident instantly means vi...

I am glad to hear you are making progress QFT

BTW in that list of criteria I think if you just dropped one (the PhD) then it opens up a lot of doors. There are a lot of intelligent women who aren't postgraduates.

So I guess I would personally be the most comfortable marrying a "mainstream messianic": that would neither be "mainstream Christian" nor a "messianic cult", but something in-between. The only thing is that, given my Asperger, I don't have that much of a choice. So I a...
